Advantages of white ink tattoos

Main disadvantages of this type of tattoos

The truth is that when we want a tattoo, we want it for life. We know that you will be with us for a long time. But it is true that white ink tattoos are not as durable as the rest. The ink is lost and sometimes it can deteriorate and other colors appear as a yellow or greenish touch in it. This occurs because the white color is not really strong, as is the case with black ink or other colors that may accompany it, which are more resistant. You have to think that there are also people who are allergic to white ink and this can cause a rejection. In the same way, it is advised that the area where you get the tattoo is not too exposed to the sun.

How should we take care of it? Your tattoo artist will know well what type of creams to recommend, but he will surely name you those that do not have perfumes, that hydrate and regenerate, because after such a design, we are going to need it. A moisturizing skin cream is always a great idea. But as we say, you must follow the professional's instructions.
